Arbitrator Marvin Huberman's decision in Taylor v. Pembridge (FSCO A12-004866), a top accident benefit decision of 2014, "should be on the mandatory review list before preparing for a catastrophic impairment arbitration. It speaks to the importance of knowing what the Guides say in terms of how to assess the range of impairment. It is equally important in reminding us that the Guides also outline what documents one should look at, how to look at them and how to ensure that objective criteria are provided in analyzing and choosing within the ranges"

In Taylor and Pembridge Insurance Company of Canada, (FSCO A12-004886, June 11, 2014), at page 20, Arbitrator Huberman, however, stated that "Adjudicators decide cases, experts do not." With that statement I fully agree.

...I note that the defendants′ counsel [Marvin J. Huberman] was, in the conduct of this trial, the model for counsel at trial against a self-represented party. I commend counsel for his professionalism.
The Honourable Justice W. Matheson,
Ontario Superior Court of Justice
Thank you so much for your sterling efforts on our behalf. Your candid and caring counsel are appreciated more than perhaps we have had occasion to express. If you ever need a reference, we're there!"

...Thanks for everything. It was a real pleasure working with you. Nice to have someone in my corner - and I couldn't have asked for more knowledgeable or talented counsel...

Finding a Good Lawyer is like finding the Pot of Gold at the end of the rainbow, or in a box of chocolates. I have been to the yellow pages, done interviews, taken referrals, checked the internet, called the local bar association ... [it] can still be elusive to those seeking someone they can relate to at a price they can afford.
My experience with Mr. Huberman is that he is an agent that empowers his clients, and a lawyer that will work with you and for you to give a voice and a fair presentation of facts.
It is rare but possible to find a Good Lawyer ... consider Marvin Huberman as the man [who] will meet and exceed your expectations.
Gail Acton, NACC/PSWs
I wanted to extend thanks to Marvin ... for doing such a good job with our case and opponents given that their stance was essentially one of non co-operation ... Very much enjoyed Marvin′s style and creative analysis that opened things up enough to come to a resolution.
